mist on the last day of the year








Here is mist, sifted through a screen:

And here is mist, unmediated:

mist on the last day of 2015

Today, on the other hand, is bright and sunny. The sun makes the snow sparkle and the crow's wings shine:

Nice textures, all

The bird bath water is frozen solid and I don't know how the birds drink in this 20+ degree weather. I'll chip it out a little later for them.

Yeah, they say that water is what birds and other little critters need even more than food when the temps go very low. I should put out a dish of water too.

I hate the misty, but it makes for evocative photos...

That it does!

What is it about misty that you hate? Is it driving in it? Or the feel on your skin, or--?

How beautiful! I love the mist.

How much snow do you have?

We're supposed to get a LOT (for us) of rain next week. 2 - 3 inches.

We don't have much at all, less than an inch--but it's scenic, at least. And cold now, which it hasn't been up to now!

I'm happy for any report of rain in California--I want your drought to end.

Those are lovely; thank you. I like the gloss of the crows' wings.

You're welcome. Me too. I just stared and stared at it. (Then I got out the camera.)

I'm glad you like them. It was an atmospheric morning... quickly the mist lifted, but it was beautiful while it lasted.

Three nice ones, especially Crow. I like the unfocused screening on the crow picture. It flattens it all out like the work is on a canvas rather than a photo. Paintings are a lot about surface, that is, the picture plane surface. It's the signature of the artist, which this photo seems to possess. I look at this one like a surface, rather than a space through a window. It's tactile.

I see what you mean! I was focused on the scenes, but when you point it out, I like what I see.

Those mist pictures are so foreboding but so lovely.

I like the insubstantiality.

The mist is lovely from inside a warm house. And crows really come into their own in the winter, don't they?

I'm so happy to have a crow visitor! I've always wanted one. And yes, they really do.

Clicking back to your angel cookie post, I came across this one again and realized I hadn't commented about how beautiful these images are and how mellow they make me feel. :D I would like to go for a stroll down that path in the second photo.

It's such a transient effect--there for maybe 20 minutes and then gone. I'd love it if we could stroll through such a scene together one day.
